REPORT: Leaked Emails Reveal Hillary’s Dislike For ‘Everyday American’ Citizens
There are over 300 million Americans as of the latest census.
They come in all shapes and sizes, races and political persuasions.
They practice many faiths and some practice no faith at all. They live in cities and towns and some – though fewer and fewer, still live on farms. They own their own businesses, cars and homes – or are dreaming of the day they will.
They are old, young and all the decades in between, healthy and sick.
They are mothers, fathers, aunts and uncles, grandparents and kids.
And although, like every family, America has some bad apples, the vast majority of are good, decent people who simply want to live their lives to the best of their ability and wish the same for their neighbors.
They have even been called “irredeemable deplorables,” but they are “everyday Americans” – the people you see in your neighborhood and in the mirror.
And Hillary Clinton hates them.
Now, an email exchange between John Podesta – longtime Clinton crony and current campaign chair – and the campaign’s director of communications, Jen Palmieri, reveals the depth of the contempt Clinton and her crew feel for Americans.
As the two tried to massage a 2015 speech the candidate delivered in New Hampshire, Podesta wrote, “I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once the first time she says I’m running for president because you and everyday Americans need a champion.”
Palmieri agreed and the hated phrase, “everyday Americans” made its way not only into that speech, but into the script for the past 18-months.
The Democrat is nothing if not a political realist and knows the pride most Americans feel in belonging to that group of “everyday” people, so she has used the phrase she hates in tweets, in videos and even in her emails.
In the video prepared to air when she launched her campaign, Clinton proclaimed, “Everyday Americans need a champion and I’m going to be that champion.”
She doesn’t seem to realize that you can’t champion the causes of people you hold in contempt.
Continuing leaks from the Clinton campaign, insiders and media sources are expected to be released in the next 27 days as part of the Wikileaks “October Surprise.”
